The Social Dynamics Of Pottery Style In The Early Puebloan Southwest

Native peoples of the American Southwest have decorated their pottery with beautiful painted designs for more than a thousand years. Anthropologists have long recognized that, in all cultures, the materiel of daily life - including the way that style is used to embellish certain types of artifacts - can play a critical role in social relations by communicating important messages about individual and group identity. In this groundbreaking study, which focuses on Puebloan pottery made during the ninth century A.D., Michelle Hegmon relates differences in pottery design style in southwestern Colorado and northeastern Arizona to differences in broad social and cultural developments in the two areas. Her innovative theoretical and analytical approach and her application of archaeological data to questions of broad anthropological concern will be of value to archaeologists, cultural anthropologists, and all those interested in the development of prehistoric Puebloan pottery.

This volume emphasizes the complex interactions between ceramic containers and people in past and present contexts. Pottery, once it appears in the archaeological record, is one of the most routinely recovered artifacts. It is made frequently, broken often, and comes in endless varieties according to economic and social requirements. Moreover, even in shreds ceramics can last almost forever, providing important clues about past human behavior. The contributors to this volume, all leaders in ceramic research, probe the relationship between humans and ceramics. Here they offer new discoveries obtained through traditional lines of inquiry, demonstrate methodological breakthroughs, and expose innovative new areas for research. Among the topics covered in this volume are the age at which children begin learning pottery making; the origins of pottery in the Southwest U.S., Mesoamerica, and Greece; vessel production and standardization; vessel size and food consumption patterns; the relationship between pottery style and meaning; and the role pottery and other material culture plays in communication. Pottery and People provides a cross-section of the state of the art, emphasizing the complete interactions between ceramic containers and people in past and present contexts. This is a milestone volume useful to anyone interested in the connections between pots and people.
